Girls’ Day - Future Prospects for Girls: cii Workshop

(26.04.2024) In contribution to this year’s nationwide “Girls’ Day - Future Prospects for Girls” on the 25th of April 2024, the cii research group conducted the workshop ‘Another cat video?! The science behind recommendations on TikTok & Co.‘ - “ Noch ein Katzenvideo?! Die Wissenschaft hinter Empfehlungen auf TikTok & Co.“ as a part of the overall KIT program.

The workshop provided students with an introduction to our research group and insights into the scientific background of recommendations on online platforms to better understand how personalized experiences, advertisements, and recommendations of videos, clothing, or music work. Finally, we resolved any remaining questions regarding a scientist’s job role, daily work, or our research interests.

We were very happy to see the participants’ great interest and active contribution. We are already looking forward to conducting a workshop next year as well.

About Girls’ Day: “Every year technical enterprises, enterprises with technical departments and technical training facilities, universities, and research centres are invited to organise an open day for girls – Girls'Day. Girls'Day – 'Future Prospects for Girls' initiated a large campaign in which a wide range of professions and activities is presented to girls of 10 years upwards. The vocational choices of girls are influenced in a very positive way. For companies, Girls'Day has evolved as an important instrument of their recruitment policy.” Excerpt from:
